Bolbitus heudelotii is a great-looking plant with fern like stems and leaves. With an eye-catching shade of green and lush cascading leaves this plant will bring an earthy and natural look to your aquarium.

This plant will grow best when bound to wood or rock, they also prefer strong water movement so place close to a filter where possible. Originating from Africa the Bolbitus heudelotii, like the Anubias, prefer less light. However more CO2 will encourage lush growth.

Helpful Tip: Use Aqua Line to bind this plant to wood or rock.

Decided to go for the xl plant to add some quick impact. Unfortunately I was very disappointed on opening the package to find a plant only half the size stated with brown tips to the fronds as well. Having previously purchased from A,E before, I was expecting their usual great quality. I don't know what went wrong this time, but three normal size plants would probably have been a better buy.

nice looking plant and a decent size plant but not the 50cm or so tall that others had mentioned in reviews more like 30cm but it will get there eventually keep in mind that size varies from plant to plant and I guess the last 2 they had were probably the smallest, all in all lovely plant and great delivery will just take a bit of time for it to grow into view.

Excellent plant. Very good condition and an instant improvement as my fish showing more colour. African plant for my Congo tetra 😃

I was amazed by the size of this plant, over 50 cm tall! Great value with huge, strong rhizomes. As usual the customer service and correspondence was excellent. I will be back real soon!
